nVidia has taken this latest release of their video card drivers offline.
A bug in the drivers causes the fans to run too slow or even stop altogether. As a consequence the GPU gets overheated and may cause permanent damage to the video card, but also on other system components as a result.
If you have already installed these drivers, nVidia has full instructions on their site on how to downgrade to 196.21
The Nvidia warning is on their downloads page here:
Roll back instructions here:
Insanity is hereditary, you get it from your children
Thanks for the H/U. Can't mention things like this too often, or in too many places.
Thanks for the warning Harm.
I was still on 196.21 but who knows i might have updated.
